Almond creme braided pastry

Oh what yummy goodness I baked up this week! I purchased two of these frozen braid pastry's
from my granddaughter Annika when they were having a fundraiser for her preschool.
OH.MY.WORD! They are sooooooo good!! This is my kind of baking too!
Take them out of the freezer...let it rise overnight on a cookie sheet and bake them in the morning!
Doesn't get any easier than that!! :)

I didn't even take the time to pretty them up for you. Just took it out of the oven and
 took quick photos. By the way I wouldn't recommend these if you are on a diet . Just gotta
break the rules every once in awhile though or it is no fun!

Pure yummy goodness in a loaf! I have one more in the freezer , but that one is strawberry
creme and I know it will be just as wonderful as this one was!!

Minor setback regarding my health. Remember I had my appendix out over Easter weekend?
Several days ago I noticed my arm was swollen and very sore above where they had put the
IV in my elbow area. Finally went to a walk in clinic yesterday because my doctor had no openings.
They are pretty sure I have a small clot and put me on steroids so time will tell.  I go to the doctor
who did my surgery on Tuesday as a follow up so we will see what he says. When it rains it pours!

Happy weekend everyone!!!!

Looks delish Sandy... I purchased the blueberry one from my niece when she had her fundraiser for school and it was fabulous. I can't wait till next year to buy a few more. It's a bit pricey but I know it's for a great cause and of course, it makes for a wonderful weekend morning treat. Hope you are feeling better!!

Sandi, Please, please do not take any chances with that clot. It can be dangerous. You like to bake just like I do. I love easy. xo, Susie

If you should feel poorly before Tuesday, I should hope you'd drive yourself to the hospital. Please. Your baking is wonderful.
